Short Suit

Casual Clothes · Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

You know when you see things in a magazine as being on-trend and you think, “Who the heck can wear those things to work?”

I now have the answer.

I can. And I’ll still be more dressed up than some of the people there. Like the girl I saw yesterday whose dress barely covered her butt. Black blazer with black shorts and red blouse

I’ve seen that shorts suits are apparently in style right now and it turns out I can actually wear one to work! Although, to be honest, this one didn’t turn out quite how I envisioned. It feels a bit frumpy to me and I think it’s because the jacket is too long for the shorts. And my shirt is tucked in funny.

But, hey, when you’re trying to take outfit photos while wrangling a bratty dog who won’t listen you take what you can get.

Although, this isn’t the first time I’ve worn shorts to work! Nope! I actually wore them at my old job, too.  Of course, those were longer. And, come to think of it, I haven’t worn them in a long time. I should break them out again. And then be sad at how I’m pretty sure they won’t fit.

Sigh. Anyone want some adorable pinstriped walking shorts? How about an adorable but bratty puppy?

    I love short suits, and love that you can wear them to work! I’m a fan of brightly colored ones (like red or pink) or pastel ones (mint, yes!) and have been looking for the right one for ages now. One day, I’ll find one… and I’ll wear it on weekends. I can only wear shorts to work if they are “bermuda length” and that’s not a great length on me. Boo!

      Normally I wouldn’t have even thought about wearing shorts to work, but considering I’ve seen some of the sales staff wearing super short-shorts (not denim, but lace or those almost lingerie-like ones) I’m pretty sure these are totally fine.

    I will ABSOLUTELY take your adorable-but-bratty puppy. Don’t even have to ask me twice. I am very experienced in bratty pups, after all 😀

    It’s been a looooong time since I’ve even thought about buying a blazer, but back when I thought I’d need one, I got a short one at Forever21, which makes me think you may be able to find one now at H&M? They have a pretty solid collection of business-y wear, and though they’re trendy like Forever21, they’re not nearly as overwhelming or so OMGTRENDY like Forever21, so maybe they’d have something.

      Okay, well, I know who I’m calling when I need someone to dog-sit 🙂 He was so BAD last night! Jumping all over me while I tried to sit on the couch, nipping at my face, peeing on the carpet just ALL THE THINGS. And that was AFTER over an hour at the dog park and some obedience work. Sheesh.

    I’m a fan of wearing shorts to work! I haven’t tried an official shorts suit yet. Not sure any of my shorts would look right. Hmm, I might have to try it.
